Tip of the week 

With many hatches over lapping right now fishing two flies will be the most productive. The lead fly should be a heavy nymph with a wet or emerger fly as the second fly. My favorite currently, due to the prominent hatches, is a Bead Head Prince Nymph as the first fly with a Caddis Emerger tied about a foot behind as the second fly. Cast the combination upstream and nymph them downstream until they straighten with the current. Then slowly strip the flies back towards you. This technique covers a lot of productive water.

Seven-day forecast 

The couple of seventy plus days last week has really gotten the hatches going. There will be a slight cool down this week with daytime highs dropping back into the lower fifties. This cold front will spark the chance of rain showers as well. The end of week looks to be very pleasant with the return of mild sixty degree temperatures.
